Celebrate Women's History Month, March 2021

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, this guide highlights the efforts of a diverse group of activists who worked tirelessly to secure the vote for all women in the United States. Yes, 2020 was the actual 100th anniversary but because of the pandemic, this important theme has been extended.
